Jambul Fruit aka Buah Kerian aka Naaval Pazham

Today, I have been introduced to a fruit which I never tried before. It's called Jambul Fruit (Syzygium cumini) or called Naaval Pazham in Tamil. My husband bring this fruit to me as I would love to try eat exotics fruit. Even it's not a familiar fruit in Malaysia, I think people in India would familiar with this fruit. There are common name for this fruit :
Malay : Buah Kerian
Telegu : Neredu Pandu
Tamil : Naaval Pazham
Malayalam : Nerale Hannu
Bengali : Jam
Oriya : Jamukoli
(Source from Wikipedia)

This tree start flowering from March to April. The flower are fragrant and small. The fruit develop by May or June and resemble large berries. The fruit is in oblong shape and starts green and turns pink to shining crimsom black as it matures. The fruit has a combination of sweet, mildly sour and astringent flovour and tends to colour the tongue purple (Source from Wikipedia)

Anyway it's not a 'hard to found tree' as my husband found it in middle of city in Kuala Lumpur.

Breakfast : Cold Tuna Sandwich

It been a while I didn't ate sandwich so this morning i'm eagerly wakes up early and prepare my sandwich.

Ingredient : your own measurement
Canned tuna chunk in oil
Fresh salad
Egg-boiled and cut it into pieces
2 slice of bread (any type)

Since it's a simple sandwich, I didn't add any mayonnaise or chili souse or tomato ketchup plus the tuna itself contain a little bit salt.
Arrange all the ingredient according to your taste. Wrap the sandwich with transparent food wrapping plastic and put it in fridge to make it cold a bit.
While for my hubby who is in diet program, I didn't serve with bread but use the salad to wrap everything.


                                Salad wrap-without the bread

                                             For me and him.
